The Science Gallery has the best coffee in Trinity's campus. It is a bit more expensive than the other options but well worth it. Friendly staff as well.

Hi there Cian, Thanks for getting in touch. At Science Gallery Dublin our target age group is 15-25, so we're not really suitable for very young children. We'd love a visit in a few years though!
